Sanctuary Wealth To Pay $530K Over Alleged Supervisory Failures Involving Exchange-Traded Fund Sales
Sanctuary Wealth Ordered To Pay Over $370K in Restitution to ETF Customers
Independent broker-dealer Sanctuary Wealth, formerly David A. Noyes & Co., has been censured by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). It must now pay a $160K fine and over $370K in restitution for its failure to supervise certain financial products, including leveraged and inverse exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and its brokers’ external activities.
According to the self-regulatory organization (SRO), going as far back as 2014 through the end of 2018 the brokerage firm failed to address in a “reasonable” manner the “unique features and risks” involving selling inverse and leveraged ETFs, which Sanctuary was required to do according to FINRA’s Rule 2111 regarding suitability.
